DVX Standard, yes I didn't upgrade and no I don't regret it (yet).

I have just got a pptx in which almost all the text is unaccessible. This turns out to be because it is "hidden" behind a document mask that covers all the successive slides.

Clicking on "display" -> "slide master view" in PPT renders the text accessible.

For now, my kludge is to deformat the PPT and produce a texte file using some other software, but I'm not sure I've got all the text.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of the mask?
